Gone Blogging

This blog is likely to be quiet till mid-October, as I am now based in the Douro and blogging my heart out for Graham’s Port, covering the harvest in daily detail.

In addition, I will be visiting the quintas for many of the Symington family’s other brands, including Dow’s, Warres, Cockburn’s, Quinta do Vesuvio, and Smith Woodhouse.

One of the quintas I am looking forward to learning more about is Cockburn’s Quinta dos Canais, in the photo below.  It is an immense quinta, down river from Senhora da Ribeira and Vesuvio, and across the river from Taylor’s Vargellas.
